I found several recipes for Gino’s pizza online and decided to combine them and do some other modifications of my own to create my own version. I have never actually had a Gino’s pizza before but I have seen it on the Travel Channel. I couldn’t wait to try my hand at it to see if I could make one that tasted as good as the one on the Travel Channel looked. That being said, if any of you have actually had the actual Gino’s East pizza let me know how it compares!
Have you ever had pizza? (Yes this is a trick question, well spotted.) But... have you ever had real pizza? You know, the papery thin, crispy, floppy, gooey, real, Italian pizza? The type of pizza you only get in Italy...and...erm...Shoreditch. Story Deli is a bizarre little Italian haven, in east London, and this is exactly where you'll find this elusive type of pizza.
I love pasta. And noodles. And sauces.
I am * in love * with this simple, no-frills mac and cheese. :) My granny used to make this all the time- she knew it was my favorite and always had it ready whenever I came to visit. :) It’s a delicious quick-and-easy side dish- no fancy or unnecessary ingredients, just pure, unadulterated mac and cheese. :D It’s definitely one of my go-to meals- I almost always have all the ingredients on hand- and the baking time / temp isn’t too picky so I can usually just pop it in the oven with whatever my main dish is. :) The ingredients: noodles, butter, salt, shredded cheese and milk Boil and drain noodles in salted water. Since it’s just the two of us, I boiled 2 cups of penne pasta.
1. Spanish Rice Cook 1 cup rice according to the package directions, substituting 1 cup pasta sauce for 1 cup of the water; stir in capers, Spanish olives and chopped scallions. 2.
This is a super simple recipe idea, and an awesome idea for a snack or just add a salad and serve for dinner! If you're looking for other snack or appetizer ideas, my Cream Cheese Garlic Chicken Poppers are a family favorite! Bagel bites were definitely a hit in our household growing up.
February 14, 2007 | By Adam Roberts | 24 Comments I wanted something simple. Specifically, I wanted spaghetti and meatballs. I’d never made spaghetti and meatballs before and last night was going to be the night.
January 20, 2009 | By Adam Roberts | 17 Comments Pizza god Adam Kuban of SliceNY and Serious Eats had this to say the last time I made pizza : “AmGour: I love ya and all, man, but you gotta spread that dough out thinner!” A thin crust, it turns out, is the sine qua non of perfect pizza. The great pizzas of New York– Di Fara , Franny’s , and Una Pizza Napoletana –all have relatively thin crusts that don’t overwhelm the other pizza elements. But, I must confess, when I’m at home making pizza my goal isn’t to recreate these laudable thin-crust pizzas; my goal is to recreate my friend Katy’s pizza , from the days when she lived close by in Atlanta.
October 25, 2010 | By Adam Roberts | 23 Comments There are certain dishes everyone should know how to make; Spaghetti & Meatballs is one of them. It’s funny, though, because even though I’ve been cooking consistently for the past six years, cooking my way through the staples (here’s my favorite chili , my new standard roast chicken , my go-to chocolate chip cookie ) I’d never really tackled Spaghetti & Meatballs. I once made fancy meatballs in a sugo that had orange zest and I titled that post “Not Your Mama’s Meatballs.” What I wanted, though, was the opposite: I actually wanted your mama’s meatballs.
November 16, 2010 | By Adam Roberts | 20 Comments There are certain readers of my blog–and I know they exist, I’ve met them in real life–who see the food I make as aspirational. Instead of thinking, “Oooh, that’s easy, I can make that” (as many of you think when you read my posts), they think, “Oooh, that looks tasty, I wonder if someone will make that for me?” To those readers, then, who think these recipes are outside of your reach (and, again, I acknowledge that I’m not describing most of you) I have a recipe for you.
April 27, 2009 | Print | E-mail | Filed under cheese , pasta , Polish , potato My friend Becky came over yesterday, for the sole purpose of cooking with me. We both love to cook and bake, and she’s as crazy as I am when it comes to making something new and/or difficult. (For a little more context, she’s the same friend who came over to make fondant with me .) So I thought well, we’ve already tackled fondant. How about something a little easier?
February 25, 2010 | Print | E-mail | Filed under eggplant , Italian , pasta This eggplant parmigiana was inspired by my favorite Italian restaurant. Hubby and I went there on a date together recently, and I decided to try their eggplant parmigiana. I’ve only had it once before; it was cooked exactly like chicken parmigiana and almost like a lasagna, with layers of eggplant and sauce. However, this eggplant parmigiana was nothing like that one. The slices of eggplant were light, pan-fried with a delicate crust so that they were firm instead of mushy, surrounded by a light tomato sauce, and covered with melted slices of fresh mozzarella cheese.
July 20, 2009 | Print | E-mail | Filed under bread , cheese , Italian Last week for dinner, I made these calzones since they were cheap and since I usually have some kind of bread dough in the fridge. This time I had the master boule dough from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day on hand, the same dough I used to make my pepperoni bread .
